B'town girls defend section bowling title


PLATTSBURGH — It took just one game Monday for the Beekmantown girls’ bowling team to make a statement.

The Eagles’ five bowlers combined for a 964 scratch score in the first of six games on the day and never looked back in defending their Section VII championship at North Bowl Lanes.

Beekmantown finished with a 5271 total, with Ticonderoga a distant second at 4902 and Peru third at 4686.

“The girls came out strong in the first game with their 964 and continued to build on their lead,” said Beekmantown coach Charlie Stone.

“Going in, we knew Ticonderoga could put up some good scores, as well as Peru and Plattsburgh. But our girls were able to set the early tone.”

Peru also bowled a solid first game, but still trailed the Eagles by 83 pins.

When it came to the end of the first 3-game set, Beekmantown sported a 2813 total, which was 398 pins ahead of second-place Peru’s 2415 and 439 ahead of third-place Ticonderoga’s 2374.

Beekmantown’s winning team included Taylor LaValley, Sabrina Manning, Alyza Agoney, Harley Wells and Paedyn Mattioli.

The top scores for the Eagles were Wells’ 258-173-216-647 series in the morning shift and 182-193-521 in the afternoon. LaValley finished with a 182-216-215-613 and a 180-202-178-568.

Wells fired a 258 game and Manning a 206 in Beekmantown’s first game of the day.

Second-place Ticonderoga was led by Jordan McKee with a 213-215-214-642 and 203-179-186-568.

Third-place Peru received a 176-182-178-536 from Brittany Bushey, a 180-184-518 from Morgan Reyell and a 193-509 from Karri Kusalonis.

Gabi Yeager’s 194-188-536 scores were high for fourth-place Willsboro, while Emily Rohrig 188-174-221-583 and 202-505 led the way for fifth-place Plattsburgh.
